The Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Saka Yusuf Ogunleye says the government of Arakunrin Akeredolu has mapped out plans to take care of failed portions of the roads in Akure, the State capital.
Mr. Ogunleye disclosed this during an interview on a Radio programme in Akure.
According to him, the present government executes its projects systematically in phases.
“All what we are doing now is, attending to those major problematic roads, which are not befitting our capital city. We are not unaware of the problems occasioned by potholes and failed portions in the roads of the state capital.
We do not make unnecessary noise.
These potholes are going to be fixed; I can assure you of that.”
He corroborated his promise that a department to carry out the task is already in existence.
“There are different departments handling projects. And we have one given the responsibility of tackling potholes and failed portions of our roads.
The roads concerned are being documented for proper attention”
Mr. Ogunleye also said the federal roads are receiving government attention,adding the Akure-Ado road would be made motorable before main construction resumes.
“The Owo-Ikare federal road has received government touch. The potholes and failed portions on the highway have been fixed. Motorists are now plying the road with relative ease unlike before. The AyedeOgbese road has been made motorable for our people to use. Currently, failed portions of the Owo-Ipele-Ifon federal road is being attended to.
The Governor has promised to tackle the menace posed by the deplorable state of the Akure-Ado road. Being a federal road is not an excuse for negligence.
First of all, we have to make it motorable, before commencing construction work.
That is what government is meant to do. Make life more meaningful for the people.
That is what we are doing. There is no other way. We have to deliver on our promise to serve the people by solving their problems”
The Commissioner assured that every part of the state will feel government impact.
“We are taking governance to the peoples door steps. No senatorial will be neglected in the scheme of things. Since democracy is serving the people, we will not fail to give the people quality service delivery. Politics will not influence our serving the people.”
